RareMed Celebrates Rare Disease Day 2022
Though a rare disease individually affects less than one tenth of a percent of the population, with nearly 7,000 known rare diseases, roughly 1 in 10 US citizens live with a rare disease, or nearly 30 million people. The majority of these diseases have no known cure. Rare diseases present many grave challenges to those afflicted by them, including challenges with diagnoses, limited awareness, sparse educational resources, and complicated accessibility pathways. RareMed was founded to accelerate life-saving therapies to these deserving patients.
It is in honor of those millions that the RareMed family is humbled to celebrate Rare Disease Day. Inaugurated in 2008, the Rare Disease Day campaign raises awareness amongst policy makers, industry leaders, academia, healthcare professionals, and the general public about the impact of rare diseases on patients’ lives. Rare Disease Day is being held on February 28th, 2022.
RareMed will be joining hundreds of patient organizations around the world in hosting an officially recognized Rare Disease Day event with our team company-wide on February 28th. RareMed team members also painted their hands in solidarity with the thousands of other rare disease advocates around the world.
